"Be flexible. That’s the very standard of yoga. [...] Be willing to change and adapt because that’s what is needed. We need to be at the forefront of showing that we are adaptable. "

Santhanam's theory: technology + positive attitude = yoga teaching success

"Spreading your love. That’s what yoga teachers do. [...] Spread your love. Spread awareness. Technology, Instagram... and tomorrow something else will be there. It’s gonna keep coming, [so] you gotta find spaces where you can make your light shine through."
